    My very first subscription. Can't wait.
  2. Maybe this year we get a release of The Weight.

    June 22, 1991 Soldier Field would be a decent release including "The Weight", a "Shakedown St.", AND a "Dark Star" jam.

    He really should have re-recorded it, the wind noise is awful.

    I played the heck out of my 2/26/77 tape back in the day so very happy this is being released.

    But what if the pelican had left by the time he went to re-record? Better to have bad sound and a floating pelican.

    The new Dead net does not seem to want to take any of my credit cards, and PayPal failed also. What the hell is going on here?

    I found the process much smoother, much quicker, than it has been. It had always been pretty bad in the past, I think.

    (Perhaps your browser variety...?)

    I'm on Firefox... will have to try on my phone a bit later. I live overseas, which may be causing the problem.

    It really is the best. I missed the first year because I was sort of out of it at the time, and I was also super-hesitant with the idea of buying unidentified shows. But it's basically a quarterly celebration of this music with a reasonable cover charge. And I personally think Lemieux knows what he's doing.

    Are there any more Big Shows from '77 that haven't been officially released in some way? Maybe 3/18 Winterland, but that well seems to be about dry, now.

    I must be going GoGD '77 MAD. Just bought the Winterland June '77 Box Set and cannot wait to get it and dig in!

    Same here, and mine (second set) is nearly a half-step slow, but is still smokin'. The tapes up on Relisten are almost exactly spot on, so pitch issues (worth worrying about unless one is, y'know, persnickety about such trivialities) aren't likely on this one. :nyah:--> :p

    For those of you who may have dethroned themselves from their barstool based on my comments regarding a '77 show, well, I guess you need a stronger barstool.

    I'd be in for a 'Summer of Dark Star' 91 Box Set.

    Though the opening salvo is a brute classic - Swing '77, one of my top 5 performances from a top 5 year - I'm simply fatigued by the density of releases from even preferred 70s' tours; moreover, recent shows outside the comfort zone have ranged from poor (#20) to unexceptional (#27). I suspect my appetite for new Dead can now be sated with prospective box sets, if desired, based on the higher degree of quality required to market a non-subscription (albeit limited), high ticket item. It seems most participants on the Dead boards/threads are too close to see the specious fog of rationalization that both acknowledges the increasing hit-or-miss and duplicative nature of the series while justifying re-subscription based on affordability.

    Then again, the community picked up a lot of new members with FTW in '15 who don't have everything - or nearly so - that's been released and no longer affordable in physical format, for whom any 72/73/74/77 shows are unqualifiedly positive additions to collections. At 33 I'm starting to feel like an old Head. Incidentally, tons of fun in Hampton last week and in Nashville the past couple days at Ascend; on to the Allstate in Rosemont as the Fall tour continues. By-the by, anyone in reasonable driving distance of Nashville for whom the 1900 Paris Exhibition themed exhibit at the Frist art museum might hold some interest ought to make this a priority commitment.

    3/18/77 would be nice just for the added Terrapin bits but please, no more ‘77 for a while! Personally I’d be overjoyed if they gave the 70s a break. Every year has shows which deserve release, the mid/late 80s and 90s have been criminally ignored for far too long. I’d love some more from ‘85 with the imaginative set lists.

    All of 2 27 77 deserves release and we alsp need 5 18 77 for the sake of having every show from 5 5 to 5 26 (i think) released
